Award winning Ghanaian actor Abraham Attah has responded to his critics who made mockery of his acceptance speech at the Film Independent Spirit Award.
Following his award over the weekend, radio personalities, Lexis Bill and Jay Folley mimicked his speech during their respective shows.The two however after several social media backlash have apologised for the comments they passed.
But in an Instagram post Wednesday, the 15-year old expressed his surprise at the way and manner his speech was received and explained that the mishap was because he was not sure he was going to win an award and thus did not prepare a speech for the occasion.
He stated that,
“I know that some of the radio presenters in Ghana are saying I gave a bad speech at the independent spirit awards. They don’t know what happen to me. I thought was not going to win so I decided not to write any speech down. I was so surprise when she mention my name. I didn’t know what to say when I went up there.”
Attah who played the role of Agu in the Beast of No Nation has since won the Marcello Mastroianni Award for Best Young Actor at Venice Film Festival 2015, ‘Rising Star Award’ at the Black Film Critics Cirlce (BFCC).
